Hunt Sabotage Accomplishes What Law Cannot
Last week’s brutal massacre of Illona Mitchell’s animal companions in Spain by bloodthirsty huntsmen reminds us that hunting needs to be stopped, period. The executions of several of Mitchell’s dogs, and the gouging of a horse’s eye, came as retribution for Mitchell’s refusal to allow Spanish hunters to carry out their dastardly deeds on her…

Police Discrimination?
In part of a hopefully rising trend, five police officers were denied service at a Taco Bell in Louisville, Kentucky recently.

Of Flags and Football
The football hooligans are at it again but this time instead of street riots and violence, they are raising hell with flags and fundraisers.

Liberate gli Hammond
La chiusura mentale ha diverse forme. Si vede dal modo in cui oggi alcuni progressisti reagiscono agli eventi di Burns, nell’Oregon, dove un gruppo di persone ha occupato una struttura dell’Ente Federale per la Gestione del Territorio per protestare contro la condanna al carcere dei rancher Dwight e Steve Hammond. I due, padre e figlio,…
